Dungeons and Dreamers

While searching for a book similiar to the best book I've ever read, Masters of Doom by David Kushner (top middle), I found a quite similiar book called Dungeons and Dreamers: The Rise of Computer Game Culture from Geek to Chic. A rather impressive name, DDRCGCGC.

It seems to be a book mainly about Richard Garriot, with biographical descriptions of his teenage life and further (haven't read the book yet so I don't know how far). John Romero and John Carmack is also mentioned in the book, concerning the creation of Doom and Dangerous Dave in Copyright Infringement. And of course, it's about Dungeons & Dragons.
